In an era of social media obsession, LinkedIn seems forgotten in the wave of Instagram, Twitter and Facebook at times. However, the networking website can be a savvy resource for job seekers and professionals.
According to LinkedIn’s hiring statistics, more than 75 percent of people who recently changed jobs used the site to influence their career path, and LinkedIn-guided hires are twice as likely to be above-average employees. A recent study by the Pew Research Center showed that 45 percent of people earning over $75,000 use LinkedIn.
Make LinkedIn part of your social media rotation in 2019.
